  1. Order confirmations come through, but host/server shows. That may trigger spam fliters on Outlook/Yahoo Anyone know how this can be fixed?
  2. Even though my old site on the same domain uses sendmail, my host has told me they dont support that even though my old/current site has been using it for years! Anyway, they are pointing me to switch it to smtp which leads me to get emails that say "My Store via" To fix this I need to enable email authentication in cPanel. A little tutorial can be found below Also for others who may read this at a later date, this is worth a look
  3. Just set a new dev site up in 2.3.4 (/dev) with the same mail settings of my 2.2 site (/catalog) which is hosted on the same domain and works fine sending emails etc. Are there some further settings in 2.3.4 that I may need to tweak to get emails working?
  4. Looked in template_bottom, no ref to Google Analytics but I assume this: <?php echo $oscTemplate->getBlocks('footer_scripts'); ?> Calls the Google Analytics script from somewhere?
  5. I know that there is a built in Google Analytics section for Oscommerce int he admin area. But can anyone give me an idea where I can place "another" 3rd party script that will track all shop-side pages on the site. So I can test mayve my old Urchin code or add Google Tag Manager or any other 3rd part tracking code. I would assume I could place it in the footer.php code somewhere to track all data.
  6. Rand Fishkin is the most respected SEO expert in the world which in turn has allowed him to build a fantastic world leading business - Moz, even Matt Cutts and the Google crew recognise this. I suggest you check out his Whiteboard Fridays.
  7. I am looking to replace the categories box on mobile sizes for BS234 with a hamburger style menu like you see across most large sites when viewed on a mobile. I have found the link below that may do it but I'm sure some of the forks may have one built in? Anyone know where I can get something to implement a mobile menu? Here is the type of thing I mean, in the top left
  8. Indeed, CTR in Google listings is also an increasing factor that is being recognised as having a part in ranking order . So if the URL is shouting out or clear, this will improve CTR and therefore your rankings. Bing is especially big on ranking readable related urls over random generated urls. I've seen this happen on many occasions.
  9. The seo king Rand Fishkin would disagree :-)
  10. I see some activity on the boards and on Githuv regarding Header Tags SEO for Bootstrap. Is this a built in feature now? In that case all I need is to add SEO URLs then?
  11. Thanks altoid, Just looking at the easiest way to make my changes and add contributions on my PC and then update my fork. ie. Softwar setup in Windows. From an outside view, the commit, push, add etc all seems alot of faff to change files to me. But understand the convinience and positives of it.
  12. Finally getting to a stage where I am looking to move to a BS 2.3.4 site and thought this was a perfect time to try and learn Gihub/Bitbucket. I see there are some videos at I will be looking at. But for development and edits of my own on my site. What is the best way to integrate with GitHub or in my case Bitbucket-which integrates with Github?! (as I can't afford to pay for private Github at the moment and going forward) I use Dreamweaver CS4, what sort of software on Windows 7 can I use to auto update my Bitbucket repositary and then pull in BS 2.3.4 changes when I want. Just looking for some pointers on getting into version control for my own changes rather than the master for the moment. Thanks
  13. I wish to have a collapse navbsr on mobile screens like Opencart does. Does anyone know what file/code changes would be needed for this? Please check this link and view at 360pxpx to see what I mean. Thanks
  14. So if it works in standard OSC 2.3.4 you'll be very confident it will work in Bootstrap 2.3.4? If that is the case, the excellent list by MortLemur will come in very handy.
  15. Has anyone got SEO URLs or Header Tags contributions working with BS 2.3.4? If so what version did you use and were any extra modifications needed? Just trying to work out if a contribution works with the stock OSC 2.3.4 whether it will work with Bootstrap 2.3.4.
